Johny Hendricks Looks to Make a Case For a Title Shot With UFC 154 Victory
Posted by Larry Csonka on 11.12.2012

- Johny Hendricks recently spoke about his UFC 154 bout with Martin Kampmann. Here are the highlights…

Is His Bout a Title Eliminator?: "You can't really control that. The only thing I can do is go out there and win. It doesn't matter how or with what. Just get the W, and then we can start working for something else. The way I look at it, to sit there and worry about all that stuff, you start putting more pressure on yourself. It's out of my control. The only thing I can control is how I fight that night. ... Then I can start making my case for other stuff."

On His Wins Over Mike Pierce, Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck : "[Those wins] were huge," Hendricks said. "I think Pierce is one of the most underrated fighters there is. People don't give Pierce that much credit. I think he's a tough, tough, tough dude. And Jon Fitch, you're going to go against another very tough competitor, and then after that you're going to fight Josh Kocheck. Having that kind of mental preparation for each fight, that's huge because now I know those are the types of guys I'm going to be facing if I win the belt. Now I know I can keep that intensity every fight ... and I can stay healthy while doing it."

On Facing Kampmann: "He was tough," Hendricks said. "He was a tough guy. Everything comes crisp but not a lot of power. He's got a good fighting stance, he's going to stay in the pocket, and he's going to hit you. That's what you're dealing with Kampmann. And he can take a punch. I know to hurt him, I've got to really, really hurt him. And if I do hurt him, don't get in there wildly. Go in there controlled and see the openings. Don't rush it. Find the openings and throw your hands."
